Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are giving away $1 million dollars via Twitter.
The “WAP” singers have partnered with CashApp to “celebrate all the powerful women out there” with the cash giveaway on social media.
Megan tweeted: “To all everyone supporting #WAP we see you!! we’re partnering with Twitter and Cash App to celebrate all the powerful women out there by giving away a total of $1 million dollars. how can some $ help you or a woman you know right now. drop your $cashtag and use #WAPParty.”

You’ll always be two of my favorite icons for empowering women and reclaiming female sexuality through your art!!!!! Thank you for supporting mine! #WAPParty.”
Meanwhile, despite the song’s success, Russell Brand recently questioned whether the ‘WAP’ music video is a “feminist masterpiece or porn.”
The comedian discussed the controversial video — which also stars Kylie Jenner and Normani — on his YouTube channel, saying it is a “capitalist objectification and commodification” of females.
He explained: “If male hip-hop tropes are about the potency of male sexuality … and then the female video is a sort of celebration of sexual potency … it’s an emulation of a template that already exists and is established by males.
“Is it equality if it has been established by the former dominator? The answer is no.”
Brand made the comments shortly after Cardi admitted to being surprised by the reaction to the raunchy video.
The rap star said: “I’ve been really surprised by the reaction, honestly.
“I knew it was gonna have a big impact, I guess, because of me and Megan. But I didn’t know it was going to be so controversial.
“I never expected that, you know, conservatives and Republicans were going to be talking about the song. I didn’t think the song was as vulgar as they said it was, you know?”
